Static discrete choice methods are widely used and have been found to be a reliable tool for predicting the behavior of people. Many statistical packages, such as Stata and SAS, come with robust implementation of these techniques and as such most researchers won’t need to code them from scratch. These notes are written to help provide intuition for the methods and help bridge the gap between theoretical and technical considerations. Some of the notes are study replications, such as Berry, Levinsohn, Pakes (1995), and some are just write-ups of commonly used techniques, such as the logistic regression. I will add more notes as I write them up.
